Itching: Itching can be caused by reaction to scented soaps or detergents, douching, new underwear, or yeast or other infection. If you are using any of the above soaps or detergents, change to a fragrance free option. Change out of spandex immediately after exercising. Consider topical yeast infection treatment or low dose hydrocortisone for symptom relief. If this doesn't work, see a doctor
